Could same-day crowns be the right dental work to preserve your damaged tooth?

If you’ve ever needed to get a dental crown before you may remember that after coming in for a routine checkup, where your Rancho dental crownsCucamonga dentist Dr. John Stockdale discovered a damaged tooth, you would have to come back to prepare the tooth and remove enough enamel for the crown.

In the meantime, the crown would need at least a week to be custom-made to fit over your tooth. During that time, you would be given a less-than-durable temporary crown. The process sounds a bit exhausting. But with CEREC same-day crowns… Not anymore!

What are CEREC crowns?

CEREC crowns look no different than traditional crowns and are still used to restore a tooth back to its normal shape, strength, size or aesthetics. The only difference is that CEREC crowns can be made in just one dental visit. Better yet, they can be made while you sit right here in our dental chair.

What makes a single visit possible is that CEREC crowns are made from a solid block of either ceramic or resin through our in-office CAD/CAM technology.

How does it all work?

When you come in for your dental crown we will first prepare the tooth by removing enough enamel to make room for the crown. Then we will take impressions of your teeth. With traditional crowns you may remember those messy, putty-like impressions that we needed to take, but now we can snap a few images of your teeth and have the images uploaded to our computer instantly.

Once the images are uploaded your Rancho Cucamonga general dentist will then use the CAD software to create a precise-fit crown. Once complete the CAM technology will mill the crown from a single block of material. And the best part is you can get your new restoration in about an hour!
